IN-STATE TUITION BILL FOR VETS SIGNED INTO LAW

Legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Sgt. Robert Andrzejczak to allow veterans attending a public college or university in New Jersey to pay in-state tuition rates has been signed into law. The law, to be known as the “New Jersey Tuition Equality for America’s Military (NJTEAM) Act,” will allow a veteran or covered individual attending a public institution of higher education in New Jersey while living in New Jersey to be considered a resident of the state for the purpose of determining tuition, regardless of the veteran’s or covered individual’s state of residence. “For my fellow veterans, the transition to civilian life can be challenging,” said Andrzejczak, “With this law, we’ll rightfully be giving veterans a helping hand and showing respect for their sacrifices and bravery in protecting our freedoms. An education is the road to a better future, so let’s make it easier for our veterans – who have given so much to our country – to obtain one.”
